part and parcel of the obama administration's handling of libya, which has been appalling. it's been atrocious. and it's really indicative of a lack of competency and truthfulness and certainly transparency in the entire obama administration. it has nothing to do with her gender. >> i think there is sexism involved. i think it's appalling. and it is this way, for some reason, because she's a woman, she is given a pass, that she's held to lower standards, which i object to. i want to be held to the same standard, equal standards. some will let her take a pass for giving false information, knowingly or unknowingly, sitting on it 73 days, until three days ago when he spoke to u.s. senators. for some reason, she gets a pass on that. i don't get that. i think that's demeaning to women if that's why she's getting a pass. >> i agree. still, to this day, no apology, no clear explanation to the people of america as it pertains to what really happened there in benghazi. again, just the illustration, i think, the prime example of the lack of transparentsy and honesty that is exemplified in the
for the united states and israel and the palestinians and the u.n. under the obama administration will suffer no consequences from that. so if you're the palestinian authority or even more if you're hamas, the lesson that you learn is that ultimately, if you just keep the pressure on, the united nations will deliver israel for you. now, that's a badly misguided view, but when secretary clinton reacts the way she did just in the tape you showed, i think it sends the wrong signal to the palestinians and makes the negotiated outcome less likely, not more likely. >> and i want to ask you about what would have to happen, but i want a side bar on what happens at the united nations. as you described, despite objections from the u.s. and israel, they did get the status they were looking for and maybe they wanted more. why did that happen? >> well, i think because the united nations basically wasn't concerned enough about the consequences of this declaration by the general assembly to take adequate steps. you know, we faced this back in 1989 and 1990 and the george h.w. bush administration then secret
forgotten what 9/11 was about? >> i think from the beginning of the obama administration has attempted to close guantanamo bay. as you remember they attempted with the prison in thompson, illinois to close guantanamo and move the detainees there. it ended up with opposition from the senate and the houses. this vote as you pointed out 50-41. they have released this government accountability report in order to build additional support for their effort to close guantanamo. people are saying these are not intelligence analysts that are releasing this report. the think the memory of 9/11 is still fresh enough. khalid shaikh mohammed and people like this who have been so explicit in terms of what they would like to do to the united states, i think those memories are still well enough understood by the american public that there is going to be continued opposition to the administration's attempts here, regardless of their efforts to build support in the senate. >> harris: i wanted to ask you about thompson, illinois. 2009 to retrofit to host military trials, house up to 100 terror suspects. a
an opportunity to get at what the nature of the obama administration foreign policy is, paul. and susan rice in some ways encapsulates a strain in democratic policy thinking that goes way back, a story that's actually told by samantha power, a close aide to president obama and wrote about genocide in with a randa. and susan rice is state department that makes a cameo appearance in the book, quoted asking, if we call what happened in rwanda genocide, how does it play for us in what were then the mid term elections of 1994. well, there's a pattern here as we see. one is a reluctance to have america be engaged in certain issues, and the second one is politicizing foreign policy issues because they might hurt the president's political stance. >> paul: and you want a secretary of state, if you're-- well, the american people want a secretary of state who is some more independent judgment and not thinking so much about the politics, is that the point? >> that would be one thing that you would look for in the secretary of state. >> paul: sorry for stating the obvious. >> the national interests and n
? >> the obama administration is now changing the definition of poverty so that a family of four with health insurance in new york city can be poor in 39,000. in oakland 33,000. but the reality is the reality is for years huge gap between what americans think when he hears poverty and east coast the old way that the government defined it when you see the mainstream media running a story on poverty saying they are 49 million poor people. they will feature a homeless family but only about 2% of the poor are homeless. in fact, the average poor american lives in a house or apartment that is larger than the average nonpoor french men, german or englishman. 80% of under the old definition had airconditioning. two thirds cable tv. half of them have a computer. a third of them have a wide screen hdtv. a quarter of them have a tivo. if you have them was anyone in your family hungry at any -- for even a single day during the last year? the overwhelming majority will say no. they have access to medical care. they have no hardship whatsoever. there is a complete disconnect between the way the government
with the administration. third, republicans need to shine a bright light on the obama proposal to ensure the american people know how insane and ludicrous this is. fourth, republicans need to use the opportunity to pass their own agenda they need to show they are not obstructionists they themselves have a positive, forward-looking agenda they are proud of, eager to take to the country. republicans need to make the case morning, noon and night, that it is obama who seems absolutely determined, for political reasons, to take the country over the fiscal cliff. our first guest is author of victory at yorktown live in virginia as part of his american legacy tour, former presidential candidate, newt gingrich. welcome back. >> good to be with us. interesting times. sean you have a smile on your face. >> sure. >> sean: a lot of our tpraepbs are not happy about in. >> un reasons i write historical fiction is to remind people that sometimes freedom is difficult, crossing the delaware christmas night in a snow storm was difficult. marching nine miles with a third of the army wearing burlap bags because they had
